To the entire Kessels-Walciuk Family, my deepest condolences. I am absolutely devastated to learn of Ria's passing. I have worked with Ria many times over the years on many projects for my home and always looked forward to seeing her and sharing a laugh. She was an exceptional woman and one of the kindest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She will be dearly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all through this difficult time.
